... EFSA APPROACH FOR SETTING UPPER LIMITS FOR DIETARY SUGARS Summary of the EFSA Report EFSA's "Scientific Opinion on a Tolerable Upper Intake Level for Dietary Sugars" is based on available data on chronic diseases, ­pregnancy-related end points and dental caries (NDA, 2022)
From page 22...
... For example, in the initial DRI review of macronutrients, the Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Range (AMDR) was developed to only provide guidance about the relative range of intakes from carbohydrates, proteins, and fats associated with reduced risk of chronic diseases while concurrently ensuring that intakes of macronutrients were nutritionally sufficient (IOM, 2002/2005)
From page 23...
... When evaluating sugar intakes and chronic disease outcomes, the standing committee recommends that future DRI committees use the CDRR model. As noted above, the AMDR was developed to only provide guidance about the relative range of intakes, thus, future DRI committees on macronutrients should reevaluate the necessity of continued use of the AMDR when developing its recommendations.
